As I sit here and type this at 10:04PM eastern time, the thermometer reads 4 degrees. There is a stiff 20MPH wind out of the west. Snow was flying a short time ago when I went out to check on my chickens. The TV just got done telling me all about the cold weather gripping the Midwest and the Northwest. Just last week it snowed in New Orleans.... Did global warming do an about face? It seems like it's either way above normal anymore, or way below. Normal is never "normal!"
